Cryptography Research Executives to Speak at RSA Conference 2013

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cryptography Research, Inc.:


Cryptography Research, Inc.


RSA Conference 2013

Moscone Convention Center

San Francisco, CA


February 25 - March 1, 2013

At the RSA Conference 2013, executives from Cryptography Research (CRI) will lead two sessions that address side-channel attacks. The first session includes a live demonstration on how keys can be extracted from Suite B Crypto algorithms, while the second covers how developers can efficiently test for side-channel leakage. CRI will also participate in a day-long seminar teaching important, essential security and technology concepts.

Also at the conference, Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist at CRI, will participate as a judge of the Innovation Sandbox, a half-day program dedicated to exploring and evaluating new and promising information security technologies.

In its booth (#2225) at the show, CRI will be demonstrating and discussing its differential power analysis (DPA) countermeasures and its hardware-based CryptoFirewall™ core. For additional details, visit:

Cryptography Research Presentations:

Monday, February 25, 2013

Title: Security Basics Seminar
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Benjamin Jun, vice president & chief technology officer at CRI and executives at BioCatch, Bloomberg LP,, iSEC Partners, Omgeo and RSA

In this day-long course, Benjamin Jun will join other security thought-leaders to discuss some of the most important security principles and technologies to participants. The course is designed to lay a foundation of essential concepts that will enhance participants' understanding of the advanced security issues that will be discussed throughout the RSA Conference. In particular, Jun will lead a 45-minute discussion on "Crypto101/Encryption Basics, SSL & Certificates" starting at 1:15 p.m.

Title: New TechnologyInnovation Sandbox
1:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist at CRI, and executives at Greylock Partners, In-Q-Tel, Sophos and Venture Capital Journal

In this half-day program, Paul Kocher and other leading security authorities will explore and evaluate new technologies that promise to transform the information security industry, now and in the future, including the "Most Innovative Company at RSA Conference 2013" award.

Title: Suite B Crypto, Keys, and Side Channel Attacks
9:20 a.m. - 10:20 a.m. - Room 310
Mark Marson, technical director at CRI and Pankaj Rohatgi, technical director of hardware security solutions at CRI

NSA's Suite B approved crypto is strong when implemented properly. But common implementations of AES, SHA-256 and ECDSA can leak secrets via radiated emissions and power consumption measurements. This session will highlight how keys can be extracted from all three algorithms and how developers and product integrators can address side channel vulnerabilities.

Title: Is Your Design Leaking Keys? Efficient Testing for Side-Channel Leakage
1:40 p.m. -2:00 p.m.- Room 132
Benjamin Jun, vice president and CTO at CRI and Pankaj Rohatgi, technical director of hardware security solutions at CRI

From mobile apps to HSMs, many systems succumb to side-channel attacks. Until recently, designers and evaluators confirmed product security with costly and time-consuming penetration tests. Improved test approaches can quickly and reliably identify whether a device has unacceptable side-channel leakage. Developers can use these tests in conjunction with existing automated security tools.
